- Citing a difference in “prosecutorial philosophy,” Boston will leave 42 cases related to the public training center for the Attorney General Chris Carr's office.
- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has charged defendants with domestic terror, citing their affiliation with what they call "domestic violent extremists".
- Attorney General Carr stated his office is continuing their prosecution against the defendants.
- While calling for accountability, Christie was booed by a crowd at the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C..
- Donald Trump claimed to be the "most pro-life" president at the same conference, noting his role in nominating Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe v. Wade. He was met by cheers over his hour-and-a-half-long speech.
- Smith compelled two false electors in Arizona to testify in front of a federal grand jury. It's possible he could look to Georgians next.
- Earlier this month, Donald Trump was indicted in Smith's investigation into 2020 election interference, marking the first time a former president has been indicted in a federal case.
- Support for abortion access has grown at an unusual rate, especially for first trimester abortions.
- While abortion may have not dominated discourse around the 2022 midterms, it could be an albatross around Republican candidates' necks ahead of 2024.
